Install VLC using YaST on opensuse 11.4

Installing VLC on opensuse is much more difficult than installing it on ubuntu .



Add VideoLAN's repository

First, add a new repository (installation source) in YaST (YaST2 -> Software -> Installation Sources)
Then, add the following Repository:
Type: HTTP / Servername: download.videolan.org /
Directory: /pub/videolan/vlc/SuSE/
Replace in the Directory above with your installed SuSE Version. Supported at this time are :
11.1
11.2
11.3
11.4
Factory

Finally, confirm the addition.

Security

The repository is signed with a GPG Key (gpg key C8DA93D2 fingerprint BC8D 780D E330 8581 B2E0 7085 33DE 8FB7 C8DA 93D2).
Accept this key in YaST and it will warn you in case there is something suspect with the repository.
Accept everything by clicking Finish.
